i need advise on making my husband happy again.

Husband is deployed (our first) and a little after I had our baby, he tells me he is unhappy with our marriage. And that he had been for awhile now. But every time I ask if he wants a divorce, he says I don't know. Or every time I ask why he feels this way, what made him feel this way, he says I don't know. What I'm trying to figure out is if this is normal for a soldier to feel this way about his spouse? Not to mention he hasn't even met his new baby yet...

You can't make your husband happy because his unhappiness is about him not about you. If he can't even tell you why he is unhappy in your marriage, then you can't assume you can just fix it. It sounds to me like you guys could do with some counselling, but with him deployed, that could be difficult. However, given it is HE who is unhappy, perhaps he should see some form of counselling to help him work through what it is that is making him unhappy.
